Entryway Shades: Finding the Ideal Features

The entryway is an important space in your home. It is where you greet guests and it dictates how they first experience your home. There is much power in finessing this space so functionality and style are in perfect balance. Natural light plays an important role. While it is highly welcomed since it improves the look and feel of your home, privacy is equally important. Let’s embark on a journey through the various entryway shades that can impact the look and feel of your home. 

Where Privacy and Light Meet

In a perfect world, the ideal combination of privacy and light would offer an adjustable and comfortable mix of both. Thankfully, top down shades make this a reality. It is a favorite among homeowners as they can have access to both simultaneously.

Top down shades are also great at covering sliders. They offer two different shades that operate independently. This way, you can customize the light, privacy, and function.

Light Filtering Transitions to Light Blocking 

When the sun shines through your windows, the desire for a healthy balance between light filtering and light blocking begins. Sheer shades emerge as the heroes in this scenario. They have a range of lighting that they control.
